After Clarkson got one on a 5-on-3 (plus a 6th skater with the goaltender on the bench), Union scored an empty-netter by Andrew Buote to get back the 3-goal cushion. [Crop/Zoom: 531x423]

It's finally starting to look like it could really happen.

And another empty-netter by Buote, this time shorthanded as well, wraps things up. [Crop/Zoom: 3029x749]

But the scoring isn't over. Senior captain Matt Cook got one last power play goal to give Union the final 7-2 edge. [Larger: 1744x1308]

The final seconds tick off and Union will finally win a playoff series! [Full size: 3488x2616]
